Subject: On later listening,
and due certainly to Mr Miller at least in part, this show impresses a lot more than it did at first. Sure there are some terrible sound problems. I was there. Garcia simply didn't even TRY to play his guitar during Picasso: he just grinned and shrugged hopelessly as he sang the backing vocals, 'cause why play when nobody can hear you? This was surely intended to be an over the top show, and a listen to Scarlet/Fire, where everything was finally going right, is a taste of what the whole thing could have been. Lesh got really pissed off at Steve Miller at one point during Dew for drowning out other players and stepping on leads, and put his finger to his lips and gave Miller a great big public "Shush!" That was weird but classic. You're in a jam band here, dude: shut up a little. All in all, patchy but very spirited. The second set altogether is actually pretty awesome, apart from some unadventurous transitions. A great ending to the largest show in Nevada's history at the time. I think it was like 50,000 people or something.

Subject: Steve Miller is in the Band!
I attended each year at Sam Boyd('91-'95) and this year was by far the best in my opinion.
First set high-light would have to be "Must have been the roses." Then the heavenly "Bird Song" followed by a strong Bob Weir "Queen Jane" and "Picasso Moon."
Second set was an unbelievable 10 songs, plus 2 song encore, that included 5 songs (with encore) with Steve Miller, who was the opening act all three days. Heavily blues influenced, "Spoonful" into a historic first "Other One" into a strong,well sung eleven minute "Morning Dew" to close the second set. Steve returned on the stage,to the audience delight,for the final two songs,the third time ever played,"Baba O'Reily into "Tomorrow Never Knows."
The seemingly out-of-place train air horn at the end of space,and also done at the end of space on the final day at Shoreline, was a clue and pre-cursor of something big to come. On 6-20-1992 at R.F.K. Stadium, the Band played Casey Jones,with air horn, coming out of space, for the first time since 11-02-84!
These three shows were a blistering hot set to end the West Coast tour!

Subject: Problems and resignation -
Honestly. This show is riddled consistently with sound issues (new in-ear system etc...) and leads to lots of sedated passages - like sailing on a day with no wind. Garcia's guitar is hardly heard more than half the time. No, he doesn't nod off, but at times just sort of checks out (and many times stops playing altogether as he's talking to the techs into the in-ear system or waiting for the corrections to be made). At others, he's ripping but can't be heard. Certainly this show has great moments, but deserves an honest overall assessment.

Subject: It's hard not to like this one ...!
It's not the greatest Las Vegas show ever but, one of the better ones! I'm still kind of partial to the very first time they ever played in Las Vegas, at least, in the medium to late eras, at the Aladdin Theatre!
It's hard not to like this one, with a song list like this with "Help On The Way"->"Slipknot!"->"Franklin's Tower", "It Must Have Been The Roses", "Queen Jane Approximately", "Picasso Moon", "So Many Roads", and of course my first of only two "Attics Of My Life", not to mention "Spoonful"->"The Other One"->"Morning Dew" & "Baba O'Riley"->"Tomorrow Never Knows" with Steve Miller, Wowie Zowie!

Subject: Great 90's show
Great sound, great show and of course fun times. I can remember trying to find any shade as there was a fungus among us and it found me, Steve Miller rocked it also.
